Below A Silent Sky is an instrumental band from Ilmenau, Germany. Their music is raw, intense and complex. Disturbing monotony, dissonance and destruction riffs dissolve in psychedelic sounds, complex harmonies and melodies with western attitude
»Walls Of Light« is an organic and complex sounding album. It was recorded live in the studio and is mastered by James Plotkin. The sound is raw, gritty and massive without sinking into an ocean of fuzz through massive overdubs or samples.
The bittersweet tone of the purely instrumental music is also picked up in the album title:
• “Walls” stands for the massive, raw and big, it is uncomfortable and disturbing.
• “Light”, on the other hand, gives something hopeful, warm and harmonious.
This concept lives deep in the riffs, arrangements and melodies of the four songs. The compositions are varied and narrative. There are no classical structures, but each piece evolves permanently. Disturbing monotony, dissonance and destruction riffs dissolve into psychedelic sounds, complex harmonies and melodies with a Western attitude. It resembles a soundtrack to which you no longer need a film.
